Sherman Hemsley Executor Finalizes Funeral Plans
EL PASO — A funeral service for Sherman Hemsley were scheduled for Wednesday Nov. 21, almost four months after his death.
News Channel 9 spoke with his funeral director, who confirmed his visitation will begin at 9:30 to 11 in the morning. His church services begin at noon at Cielo Vista Church with the procession leading to the Fort Bliss National Cemetery where he will be buried with military honors for serving in the Air Force.
The delay was due to an estate battle that was finally resolved Nov. 9, where a judge granted Flora Ethinton-Bernal full authority of executing his last will and testament.
He died of lung cancer in July.
